She only revealed in December that she was due to give birth to her first child, announcing she was five months pregnant.
And now TV presenter Konnie Huq is celebrating after giving birth to a baby boy.
The former Blue Peter host and her husband Charlie Brooker welcomed little Covey at around 10pm last night at a London hospital.

The tot weighed in at 6Ib 2oz, Huq's agent Jonathan Shalit has revealed.
Announcing the news, 36-year-old Konnie said in a statement: 'A real cutie. We are chuffed to bits, he is absolutely gorgeous!!'
Covey Brooker Huq is the first child for the former Xtra Factor presenter, who married comedy writer Brooker at the Little White Wedding Chapel in Las Vegas in 2010 after a nine-month romance.

She debuted her bump as she joined her husband at the British Comedy Awards just before Christmas.
And she showed what a proud expectant mother she was by wearing a tight silver dress which showed off her burgeoning belly.

The new addition to the family will round off their loved-up relationship nicely.
In an interview with the Guardian last
year, Konnie was asked, 'What or who is the greatest love of your
life' to which she replied, 'My husband.'
She was last spotted showing off an even larger bulge last month as she dressed down in grey jogging bottoms for a stroll near her home.
But while she has now become a parent, Konnie admitted just a few weeks ago that she wasn't prepared for the new addition.
She told MadeForMums.com: 'I’ve kind of been a bit of a hermit in the last trimester! We honestly haven’t bought anything.'
But while she's only just getting used to her new role, the TV star has already been thinking about extending the brood.
She added: 'I do like big families. Watch this space.'
Huq, who previously dated fellow presenter Richard Bacon for six years, met Charlie a few years ago when she appeared in an episode of his Screenwipe on BBC1 in 2008.
But romance only flourished a couple of years later.
The pair raised eyebrows when they first got together due to their very different personalities.
The couple are often described as an odd pair, with Charlie, 41, described as a satirical pessimist while Huq has a clean-cut happy-go-lucky image.
